“Put simply, the cause of the civil war was the refusal of Lincoln and other northerners to honor the revolutionary right of self determination, the touchstone of the American Revolution. The act of imposing one people’s morality upon another people is an imperial denial of self-determination. Once begin the process of denying it to others in its own name and there is no end of empire except war and more war.” William Appleman Williams
